Art don't worry I know what you mean...and thankyou for all of the accolades.
I think the discussion does bring up an intersting point. It has always been a vague distinction in my mind what the difference between a poster and a fine art print is.
Context and intent seems to be the dividing line in this world. The advertising angle often prevents me from viewing my own work as gallery art. Though, I never had that concern when looking at others work in galleries-- your work stood up well to the "art test" at PS1 (no pun intended) and in alot of ways seemed more relevant to folks than much of the work meant only for a gallery setting.
It has always been my intention to blur the line between the specificity of a poster and the fine art print. I'd like to hear your thoughts on what those distinction are... and it might be useful to others as well. --b
it was never meant as a "backhanded" anything. it's just an observation.
in actuality, there is a big difference between posters and "real" or "fine" art. and it's not just "semantics". it's a distinct cultural difference. if you don't believe me, ask some other folks out there in other places.
anyway, i love this thing and i never meant anything i said about it as any sort of insult. you guys always think the worst about me no matter what i say.
